Myotherapy

Myotherapy is a health care system that specifically focuses on and assists with muscular pain and dysfunction. Along with physical manual therapy techniques, myotherapists are skilled in the use of a range of science-based treatment modalities in the assessment, identification and treatment of musculoskeletal pain.

Myotherapy treatment includes: trigger point therapy, joint mobilisation, dry needling, cupping, stretching, exercise, rehabilitation and pain management.

Myotherapists often work in conjunction with other allied health practitioners, such as chiropractors, to optimise patient outcomes.

Myotherapists treat & manage:

  • Upper, mid and lower back pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Neck pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle injuries
  • Stress and tension
  • Ongoing muscle soreness
  • Specific event preparation (e.g. triathlon, sporting competitions etc.)

Myotherapists believe that the best way to eliminate or minimise pain is to identify the cause creating the dysfunction.
